Santa Catalina

Since Santa Catalina became known in the international surfing community in the 1970s, it has done well to maintain its identity as a tucked-away fishing village. Surfers who stumbled on the formidable waves must have decided to keep it a secret, because the village still enjoys a refreshing lack of touristic development. Still, a holiday in Santa Catalina can be a comfortable affair, with a few local restaurants and cafes set in pleasant beachside buildings, along with a small number of surf shacks and budget accommodations. Santa Catalina is in Veraguas Province. Put Santa Catalina at the heart of your travel plans by using our Panama trip maker tool .
